Ghost town of Goblesville

Goblesville is now considered a ghost town in Huntington County. Very faint traces remain of the small town in Clear Creek Township, north of Huntington near the Whitley County line. It was named after Peter “Roy” Goble who first settled there in 1855. Goblesville had a post office, sawmill, wagon and buggy shop, a school and more. Shown is the old schoolhouse now used for storage. Other than the Methodist church, few reminders of the past remain.



About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
